HUE OF DAY April�hsu


You mentioned that -some get used to worshipping, -some are confused by something dazzling, -some had been mature sexy and pretty. April Hsu National Cheng Kung University Law/ Industrial Design department

Hue of day mainly collected the pictures that I took during my travel in past 2 years. It is not a graphic design work for anything, but footnote in my life. In the past two years I experienced so much, broke up, died, lawsuit, accident...Suddenly, the essence of life became so clear through tears, and I tried to express some of it through the pictures, inclusive of so many personal perspective and emotional part inside it. Facing so many graphics, how to choose the coherent context and compiled them together become a big problem for me. Before embarking on the work, I categorized these works by the hue in my daily life, ink, blue, white, and red. Regarding sunrise as the beginning of one day, the first part is red, then, it would turn to gray, white, evening blue and night ink. So I arrange my works according the sequence and talk about my feeling of life through each colors.

You have read enough in your life. You emphasize something past in your belief. your word just like the red line in my note, some say it is important, is it real?

Read [Past tense]

Through len, I described something past, /mature/dazzing but suddenly withered / and life fragments that I drew red line in the past.

Stand up,swing, look up, down down upside down. hug, dance, jump, run. You stay among people, you maintain a proper posture. You are a statue. You make everyone get close to you. but nobody really cares what you care. You are in gray, and so am I.

gray [grace posture]

Metaphers inside the set of pictures are related to the grace posture that we need keep when we stay among the life competitor, lover, families ,friends and strangers.


I leave one question blank in the test. I leave one moment blank in my life. Hard to say, hard to define. No answer, no exactly right. please wait me a moment. I will know, I will find out...

White [wait a moment]

Some moments, just wait. Some moments, need to be wated. And I took these moments.

Ocean, Sky. All you can see is blue, All you can feel is breeze, All you can listen is your breath. blew away, blending with my tears, bon voyage! in your bright way.

Blue [blew away]

Although things happened, someone stroke the stone into your pond It will gone in one day. Stay in peace, simply perceive essence and let daily blue gone.

Inside the dark, the deepest impression might be vague. Inside my mind, the vague world might be dark. fortunately, we find the light. We know daydream is our right, illusion is our favorite.

Ink [insight of dark]

In the sets of pictures, I tried to stand in dark and captured memory that came from bright.
